Siena Coach Fran McCaffery to be Named Iowa Head Basketball Coach Monday

Mccaffery_medium

Per Dochterman, Siena head coach Fran McCaffery has accepted an offer to become the newest head basketball coach at the University of Iowa.  McCaffery has 13 years of head coaching experience at Lehigh, UNC-Greensboro, and Siena, and is coming off his fourth consecutive 20-win season and third consecutive NCAA appearance.  Siena played uptempo (KenPom top 40 tempo rating year after year).  As we thought, Iowa/Big Ten ties had absolutely nothing to do with this decision; aside from a three-year stint as an assistant at Notre Dame, McCaffery has no midwestern experience.  Not a huge selection, though he was allegedly targeted by Seton Hall and St. John's.

We'll have a more thorough analysis of McCaffery, his previous teams, his recruiting prowess, etc. this afternoon.
